Tinnitus Treatment in Orlando at Harmony Hearing Centers of America

Dr. Al Turri of Harmony Hearing Centers of America

Ringing in the ears is a hearing condition which impacts an estimated fifty million Americans somewhere between 60 and 75 years of age. The main characteristic of tinnitus, which generally strikes more men than women, is hearing sounds that no one else is able to hear. Tinnitus is generally not viewed as a disease in itself but an indicator of something else taking place in one or maybe more of the four areas of the auditory system - the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. Although it is not a type of loss of hearing by itself, it can be related to other types of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss. In addition, since tinnitus fills the ears with a sustained base level of ever-present sound, it brings down the absolute threshold of hearing and makes it more challenging to hear faint sounds "over" the constant buzzing or ringing.

The audiologists at Harmony Hearing Centers of America in Orlando are constantly investigating new tinnitus treatment options to make them locally available. Since many of these therapies are fairly new, individuals who've lived with tinnitus for many years are often unaware that new treatments have been introduced. Being able to offer the most current tinnitus treatments locally in Orlando is a source of pride for the audiologists at Harmony Hearing Centers of America. To better disseminate tinnitus therapy information they've compiled a list of tinnitus treatments on their website and often blog about new breakthroughs in the field of tinnitus research. Readers looking for further information on the treatment options listed below are encouraged to visit the website at or call for an appointment.

Hearing aids. People with tinnitus generally also have some level of hearing loss. Hearing aids create a dual benefit of improving hearing and masking the tinnitus. Tinnitus sufferers using hearing aids commonly report partial or complete relief of tinnitus symptoms.

Counseling and Relaxation. Being able to relax is extremely helpful if the ringing in your ears irritates you. Stress makes tinnitus feel worse. People with tinnitus may experience depression, anxiety and other psychological problems for which counseling is applicable.

Drug Therapies. A number of tinnitus sufferers experience anxiety and other strong emotional responses to their tinnitus. Selected drug treatments may provide relief from these emotional reactions and offer some relief from the ringing in the ears.

Maskers. Tinnitus maskers are tiny electronics that look like hearing aids and are adjusted to generate sound that cover up the tinnitus. Tinnitus maskers are an excellent option for many individuals, providing relief from the tinnitus. The downside is that they have been known to affect understanding of speech.
